Submariner Stuart Jennings Biography
Scuba diver Stuart Jennings, 37, invited a woman to his home in Belmont, Herefordshire, where the couple had consensual s*x.
A court heard that Jennings ‘manipulative’ became ‘harsh and aggressive’ towards the woman, even choking her ‘until she couldn’t breathe’.
Wolverhampton Crown Court heard that Jennings, who was out on bail on a s**xual assault charge at the time, then raped his victim while he slept.
Judge Martin Jackson told Jennings that the woman he raped did not want to engage in a certain type of sexual act with him, but she went ahead anyway.
Jennings, of Belmont, Hereford, admitted to raping, penetrative assault and s*xual assault on another victim. He was jailed for six years and 10 months last week.
The court heard from Jennings that in 2020, Jennings began talking to the victim about him on the dating site Bumble.
He invited her to her house and told her to bring a duffel bag and ‘sl *** y’ underwear.
A court heard how, after spending the night together, the couple began having consensual sex that soon became “ harsh and aggressive. ”
Prosecutor Michael Hall said Jennings then began choking and strangling the victim “until she couldn’t breathe.”
Although the woman said she wanted to drive home, the ‘manipulative’ Jennings stopped her and threatened to call the police because she had been drinking.
She then made her wear a dog collar, and when she wanted him to remove it from her, she claimed that she had lost the necessary screwdriver to do so.
During the night, while the victim was in bed next to him, she raped her. The court heard that her terrified victim felt that her only “way out” was to agree to have sex with him the next morning.
Jennings continued to impose himself on the woman while repeatedly demanding a certain type of sex, but she continued to say no.
The court was informed that the crime occurred while Jennings was out on bail on a separate s*xual assault charge in 2019.
Hall said another woman had previously been to Jennings’ home, and while the couple sat watching television, he began to make advances.
He made inappropriate comments, including demanding a particular type of s*x with her because ‘that’s what a man does to control a woman.’
He continued to make advances, pinning her to her couch as he slapped her, tugged at her hair, and bit into her.
Giles Nelson, on defense, said Jennings’ actions were “extremely distressing” for women.
He told the court that her client was an “intelligent and promising individual” and that he previously had good character.
Jennings was diagnosed with Chrohn’s disease in 2015, which is why she left the Royal Navy after more than eight years.
Nelson said Jennings accepted that she had “destroyed her middle-aged life with her behavior” and had “serious issues” that she needed to address.
Jennings also received an indefinite sexual harm prevention order that prevented her from registering on dating websites or apps and limited her access to the Internet.
